Those of us who grew up in the '80s know how good we had it. We pride ourselves on being the last generation to have had a truly analog childhood. Before the advent of cell phones and the Internet, we played in the street, knew our friends' phone numbers by heart, and considered a Walkman to be the height of technology.

Perhaps what we remember most about those years, however, are the iconic toys. We rode our bikes, sure, but we also had roller skates and Pogo Balls. Inside, we took care of our Pound Puppies, practiced words on our Speak and Spells, and played with dolls and action figures from our favorite shows, like He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and JEM and the Holograms. 

It was a magical time, so it should come as no surprise that as parents, we'd love to give our children some of that experience. We may not be able to keep them off their tablets, but American retailers have made it easier than ever for us to relive our wonder years by making these beloved toys available for a new generation of kids.
